Personal Injury FAQ
At what point should I contact an attorney?
It is important to contact an attorney as soon as you can. After an accident,
you may be facing extensive medical care. You may have been contacted
by the other party's insurance company for a statement. It is crucial
that you consult an attorney immediately so your rights and interests
are protected. This can help ensure higher financial recovery and therefore
more money to pay medical costs and living expenses while you are injured.
I believe that I may have been at fault in the accident. Can I still file a claim?
Even if you believe that you were partially responsible in the accident,
it is still helpful to contact a lawyer regarding filing a claim. It may
be discovered during an accident reconstruction that you were actually
not at fault. It may also be possible to still recover compensation even
if you were partially at fault. Either way, your lawyer can evaluate your
case to determine what to do.
What is my injury case worth?
The value of your case will vary depending on numerous factors. The extent
of your injuries, the accident itself, medical costs and the long-term
effects of your injuries will all affect what your case may be worth.
To determine your chances of financial recovery, a skilled personal injury
attorney will need to conduct a thorough evaluation and investigation
of your case.
